I have a hen that is incredibly loud and it sounds like she's injured and wailing. It's really unpleasant and, oh yeah, LOUD. She started making this noise when she is getting ready to lay - she panics and runs in and out of the coop screaming. This can go on for hours. She didn't lay yesterday so all was quiet then this morning she started with the screaming. What I have been doing is locking her in the coop when she does this and she generally quiets and gets down to business. Unfortunately, she started doing this even after she laid today. In fact she hasn't stopped screaming all day. My neighbors are all very close and it really isn't fair to them. Is there a super secret way to make a chicken stop vocalizing? I would rehome her immediately, but she's my son's chicken and he's desperate to keep her. Thanks for any suggestions.
